Also I prefere to access html in this way, and even netscape can, using
the pseudo-url "file:/usr/doc/dpkg/programmer.html/index.html", but I
think that the problem is that dwww converts manpages and info files to
html on the fly, using cgi, and needs a server.

I missed the discussion about that, but I would like to have voted for a
conversion pre-made by the maintainers. I don't ask to rediscuss this
(dwww is out and is good), I'm just telling my preference.
